Congressional Testimony: The Russians Paid Fusion GPS to Generate the Golden Shower Trump Dossier…

In congressional testimony today William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital, was testifying about the “Foreign Agents Registration Act” (FARA).

During Mr. Browder’s testimony the origin of the Fusion GPS ‘Russian Dossier’ was discussed.  Browder stated the Russian government actually paid Fusion GPS to create the Steele propaganda dossier on candidate Donald Trump.  That same dossier was used by the FBI in June/July 2016 to generate the FISA surveillance warrants against the Trump campaign. WATCH:

Yes, that actually means FBI Director James Comey was using propaganda commissioned by Russia to attack Trump, as the framework to launch his FBI investigation into candidate Donald Trump and Russian collusion.

Expanding the reality.  This means the Russian collusion narrative the U.S. media has been running with for a year to attack Trump, was actually factual collusion between Russia and the the U.S. FBI, via James Comey.

All of this begs the question: Why is Robert Mueller is still investigating Trump?

Full Congressional testimony below.  Foreign Agent Registration Requirements William Bowder, a Russian market investor, testifies at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on foreign agent registration requirements, as well as what he knows about Natalia Veslnitskaya, a Russian attorney who met with Donald Trump, Jr. in 2016.

Graham’s questioning begins at 56:00:

    According to Brower both Russia and Fusion GPS are such nasty ensnaring blackmailers that once you take their carrot you’re theirs forever. Well, riddle me this: who has links to BOTH and is likely owned by one or both?

      One HRC, who was lobbying against the Magnitsky Act sanctions shortly after horn dog was paid half a million for a short speech in Moscow.

      Who else was lobbying against Magnitsky?

      Fusion GPS, and the Trump Jr. Switch Attorney.

      And of course, Putin, himself.

    So Russia colludes with GPS to bring down Trump. Yet the media and the DIMs hysterically claim Russia wanted Trump elected? Why? Because he was going to make America energy independent. No! Because he was going to stop illegal immigration. NO! Because he was going to defeat ISIS. No!! Nothing Trump has done, said he was going to do, or plans to do favors Russia. So why exactly did they want to help him get elected?
    How did the Golden Dossier help him, exactly? This is a funny way to help Trump win. Someone needs to shine a light on this so I can understand the strategy here.

    I think it is highly possible Russia involved with the production of the Trump dossier propoganda — and we know Russia and Fusion GPS are connected. However, is there any actual evidence of Russian government being behind it or paying for the dossier?

      Just another ploy of the democrats to cover themselves and Clintons and Obama and undoubtedly Soros who finances so much of this garbage and now desperate and thinking if they go after the Clintons some how they will be considered innocent. Good try but ain’t gonna fly, but yes go after the 3 Clintons, Obama and Soros because they have all had long time connections with Russia. Also, Putin is very intelligent like Trump and no way would he interfere with any election here but no one complained when Obama interfered in Canada’s election and helped the idiot Trudeau get elected. Why not? They new to grow up and grow a pair and if female a brain (thinking Waters, Pelosi, Collins, Mrkausky(sp) who together are always badgering us and our president and the later two are definitely democrats in republican clothing like McCain and Graham. By the way, when McCain finally passes away DO NOT EVER allow him to be buried in ANY military cemetery because he is not and was not a hero, has worked against America, and should never ever be placed with real military!

    How ironic. The real “Russian collusion” was actually always between Russia and the United States FBI. And the Comey-led FBI used the fake dossier that was damaging to Trump, to start it’s covert Russian hacking investigation, which led to FISA warrants, spying, and illegal unmasking. It’s class Saul Alinksy: accuse your opposition of what YOU are actually doing. This new information requires Rosenstein to terminate Mueller’s investigation. A new special counsel needs to be appointed to investigate Comey, Brennan, Clapper (for sedition and recent talk of a violent coup), Obama, Rice, Powers for the illegal spying and unmasking, and the Clintons for the sale of Uranium to Russia and quid-pro-quo speaking fees from Russia!

    Browder is a brave man for speaking out and telling his truth. I encourage everyone to watch all of his testimony. That being said, Graham’s questioning (50:00) goes off the rails after asking about Fusion GPS. What I found interesting was that Graham inadvertently exposes McCain as working with Russia in a round about way regarding the “dossier” making its way to the FBI and Comey.

Seems to be meeting between Trump Jr wouldn’t have happened if Obama departments were doing their job as Russian lawyer would not have been in the country on some sort of visa…who granted it?Why are Crowdstrike not being investigated and interviewed re the evidence that started all this. Surely this would be Muellers first point of call i.e. start with the evidence and have other independent experts review the data. After all Comey didn’t get dossier right so why is he so right that Crowdstrike got it correct!!!! Did Comey try to intimidate Trump with the dossier? Surely that’s worth investigating.

    Don’t forget that the Clinton Democrats were also paying money to get Fusion GPS to create dirt to give to the mainstream media to tarnish Donald Trump.

    “Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. … Moreover, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign. In September 2016, while Fusion GPS was quietly shopping the dirty dossier on Trump around Washington, its co-founder and partner Peter R. Fritsch contributed at least $1,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary For America campaign, Federal Election Commission data show. His wife also donated money to Hillary’s campaign. Property records show that in June 2016, as Clinton allies bankrolled Fusion GPS, Fritsch bought a six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Bethesda, Md., for $2.3 million.

    The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democratic activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele. Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.

    LOTS of Contradictions:

    “An anti-Trump Republican donor hired Fusion GPS to research Trump in Sept. 2015. But as the former real estate mogul ascended to the front of the GOP pack, the donor stopped financing the research project.” (Jeb Bush no doubt)

    “That’s when a Democratic supporter of Hillary Clinton’s hired Fusion GPS to continue its research. Steele was then brought on board.” (Hillary-we knew she was involved)

    “McCain became involved in the dossier drama in late November, when he was told about it at an annual event hosted in Nova Scotia for the Halifax International Security Forum. There, Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Russia, told McCain and former State Department official David Kramer about the existence of the dossier.” (Russian connection?)

I am not holding my breath, but maybe for once he wants to die with a fairly clean conscience for his many treasonous acts starting back in Vietnam and through he way too many terms in Congress. He has never been anything like loyal to America and now what will he spout. Keep us informed, Sundance.

    “I took an oath of secrecy and will uphold it but it doesn’t stop me from voicing what is solely my opinion here. There has been one huge ugly organized crime conspiracy running from the top level down for the last 8 years with a goal to transform this nation through any means legal or not. Until recently they controlled all of the levers of power and still have hands on many but we patriots now occupy the top and we need to take advantage of it to insure the rule of law. It’s time for a RICO case against nearly the entire former political administration. In order to remain in power you either had to participate in or tacitly accept things that you KNOW were wrong. The Nunes report is hopefully the first of many and I’m supper happy that this information is seeing the light of day legally. The kinds of things that were happening with the blessing of those at the very top were so wrong that I turned in my IC community badge and walked away in disgust. Bannon or Mooch if your listening get a JWICS/NSAnet account and let the rank and file patriot Pedes in the IC know about it. You’d be surprised what we can tell you if there were a legal route available. Also we would collectively shit ourselves if we saw @RealDonaldTrump on echirp. Just saying by u/quiet_pede

    Browder’s testimony seems suspect to me. Whenever he is questioned about the motives or thinking of Trump’s son and manager during the June meeting, he confesses uncertainty and ignorance. That same ignorance applies to any American on the US side of an American-Russian meeting.

    Yet whenever his opinion is asked regarding the motivations of Russians, he responds with such certainty that one would think he is a close confidant of Putin.

    Listening to Browder reminds me of that Iraqi ex-patriot, who conned us into invading Iraq after 9/11.

    Browder is no longer a U.S. citizen, having given up his U.S. citizenship in 1998. Browder has lobbied for the Magnitsky Act. Why has Browder not registered as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA)?
    “How can a person who does not pay taxes [in the U.S.] have this kind of influence?” Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer representing (Russian businessman Denis) Katsyv.

    Why are U.S. citizens not allowed to see the Magnitsky documentary?
